About your teacher
Jock has been teaching since 2003 and co-founded Lime House Yoga in Cornwall with his partner Emma. His journey to yoga came after falling down a mountain snowboarding, breaking his back in several places and shattering his collarbone. After numerous unsuccessful operations he began a regular yoga practice that enabled him to heal from his injuries and astonished the medical practitioners who had tried and failed to put him back together!
He went on to train with Bridget Woods-Kramer, a world-renowned Anusara teacher with whom he spent six years studying and teaching. Over the last few years his personal practice has moved towards Ashtanga and he’s undertaken trainings with some of the worlds best teachers including David Swenson, John Scott, Richard Freeman and Manju Jois, whom he recently assisted at Stillpoint Yoga in London.
He has developed a style that is physically challenging with attention to posture and alignment and above all, playful. His experience has taught him to cherish the physical practice of yoga, but it is the connection between mind and body that inspires his practice.
